2021 VIRTUAL FACILITATOR TRAINING

“Join the Postdoc Academy team in an interactive, virtual training for those interested in facilitating postdoc learning communities at their institutions. The Postdoc Academy is an NIH-funded initiative designed to support postdoc skill development from their orientation to taking their next career step. The Postdoc Academy online course is live on edX, and we’ve designed virtual Postdoc Academy Learning Sessions (PALS) to connect our online content directly to your postdocs’ local context and community, thereby promoting deeper learning of the material.

“This immersive workshop will provide hands-on facilitator training, professional development resources, and introduce you to the community of PALS facilitators. Training is open to everyone, designed specifically for those interested in adapting our content to local programming, and accessible to newer facilitators. We will expand on traditional programs by working through inclusive facilitation strategies and assisting participants to develop strategies for capacity building within their own institution. We focus on developing and practicing facilitator skills, as well as creating a community of practitioners, in addition to disseminating our materials and content.”
